College Offers Summer Camp for Future College Students  

Rising high school juniors and seniors can earn college credits at Essex County College’s Early College Summer Camp 2023. The program runs from July 10 to August 17.

“The program is for those students interested in college after graduating high school,” said Dr. Elvy Vieira, Dean of ECC’s Office of Community, Continuing Education & Workforce Development. The program is offered free through funding from the State Office of Higher Education and the New Jersey Council of County Colleges, she said.

“Summer Camp 2023 is an excellent opportunity for high school students to receive academic enrichment, experience college life and learn more about what Essex County College has to offer,” Dr. Vieira said of the popular program.

“Our Early College program provides future college students with a foundation to better succeed at the next level of their education,” said ECC’s President, Dr. Augustine A. Boakye.

Students will have a great opportunity to take college courses in College Composition I and College Success Seminar, earn college credits, participate in college and career exploration, as well as professional and social skills workshops.
